The FIFA World Cup™ is the most prestigious and popular sporting event in the world, and it is coming to North America in 2026. Houston is bidding to be one of the 16 host cities of the 2026 FIFA World Cup through the Houston 2026 World Cup Bid Committee, Houston has coordinated an organized, impressive, community approach and strategy to the bid.

Many Houstonians share the vision of hosting the 2026 FIFA World Cup and see the value it will bring to our community. And many have asked, “How can I support the bid?”





This campaign allows Houston businesses to support the Houston 2026 World Cup Bid Committee by financially backing the bid and demonstrating our community’s enthusiasm for being a host city.

Like the Houston Livestock & Rodeo Boot Art Contest, this campaign includes three-foot painted soccer balls. Participants can decorate the soccer balls however they like! Participants will display their soccer balls at their place of business during the campaign. We are also coordinating an Art of Soccer tour where the soccer balls will be collectively displayed in high-traffic areas around Houston.

You decide how you want to paint your soccer ball — using employees, professional artists, local youth groups, etc.

We encourage you to create a fun social media activation around your soccer ball design and painting process.

The Houston 2026 World Cup Bid Committee will also feature you on its social media platforms.
